Synopsis:

A new edition of this title may be available from McClelland & Stewart.

From the Back Cover: “Reading Elise Levine is akin to a wild ride down a dark road at night.... Bold and startling....Precipitous and exhilarating.”
Globe and Mail

“One of Canada’s finest fiction writers.... Levine demonstrates a kind of incandescent knowing about human affairs which she deploys in stunningly nuanced passages.... A sensitive, cagey dominatrix of literary form and human psychology.”
–George Elliott Clarke, Mail Star

“A dazzling wordsmith, a lexical tease, Levine is like a kid let loose in a leaf pile, kicking up words for the sheer joy of watching them spin.”
Toronto Star

“A cutting-edge literary sensation.”
NOW

“Audacious....There’s hardly a word in [these stories] that doesn’t weigh heavily, or doesn’t have a bristling edge to it.”
Toronto Star

“Levine’s vivid language and unflinching exploration of people living on the edge of society will stay with you long after each story is read....The voices in Driving Men Mad sing as well as shock.... Levine is unafraid to experiment with language, voice, and form. Her explorations of humanity and the adventurous spirit of her work will keep the reader hooked, hesitating to turn the page but unable to resist the pull of her prose.”
–St. John’s Evening Telegram

“Levine’s writing is adventurous and brave.... Tautly constructed and rigorously controlled....”
Quill & Quire

“Taut and direct, Elise Levine’s writing compresses the distance between art and audience, drawing a reader experientially through her fiction. Levine is a visceral imagist. Her fiction renders event indistinguishable from emotion, affecting the gut as fully as the mind....The tension that Levine’s writing evokes remains unresolved, extending beyond the page of her fictions.”
Ottawa Citizen

“No reader can make his or her way through these stories and retain any kind of complacency.”
Calgary Herald

“Levine exposes the roughness and the crude pain of life. It’s a rare writer who can write bluntly about the raw side of life while subtly leaving room for her readers to make their own, often disturbing connections.”
